looking for illustrators to interview

I’m looking for children’s book illustrators of all kinds (cover art, graphic novels, interior b/w art, picture book illustrations, easy reader art, etc.) to interview for my blog in November and December. I’d like to focus on illustrators and author/illustrators that had a book project published in 2007 or 2008.

In the interview, I’ll email questions about your style, medium and process, as well as your path to illustrating children’s books, and what current projects you are working on.

For examples of previous illustrator interviews, check out the ones I did last year for Robert’s Snow:

Susie Lee Jin

Karen Lee

Elizabeth Dulemba

If you’re an illustrator that wants to be interviewed, or know someone that might like to be interviewed, please email me: stephanie (at) sruble (dot) com, with Illustrator Interview in the subject line. (If your books don’t fit into this time frame, I’m hoping to do more interviews in the future.

Thanks! I look forward to featuring some great illustrators here soon!

  1. I don't fall into this category, but I wanted to say that I'm looking forward to the interviews!

    Really, I'm addicted to commenting. ;)

  2. ohhhh! I was excited to see Karen Lee on your list. She's my critique buddy, and she's FABULOUS! :0)

    If I know anyone else, I'll send them your way! :0)


  3. I enjoyed reading your previous interviews.
    Wish I knew someone who fits the category. Good luck!

  4. Carrie: I'm looking forward to the interviews too. I'm not going to comment on being addicted to commenting xxx oh spork, I already did. (I tried using the Teletubby swears, but it just didn't work for me, so I used spork instead.)

    Christy: Karen is fabulous! Her answers were really interesting too. Thanks for passing the word on.

    Adrienne: Thanks!
